Cybersecurity Engineering and Operations

The cybersecurity landscape is ever-evolving. Adversaries seek to penetrate critical systems to achieve advantages, create instability, and increase their control in cyberspace.

The warfighter must secure these systems, but cybersecurity requires a multi-layered approach.

Gnostech provides full spectrum defensive cybersecurity and engineering capabilities across U.S. Navy (USN), U.S. Air Force (USAF), U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), and Intelligence Community (IC) programs.

Cyber Compliance

Assessment and Authorization (A&A)

Defense agencies are required to undergo detailed and systematic security assessment processes to demonstrate compliance with security standards. Gnostech supports all aspects of Risk Management Framework (RMF) and Department of Defense (DoD) Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation Process (DIACAP) to RMF efforts, including creation and submission of artifacts for RMF packages. Our expertise with these rigorous activities ensures a system’s security posture and are in accordance with DoD, USN, USAF, USCG, and other federal directives and regulations.

Security Test and Evaluation (ST&E) and Certification Test and Evaluation (CT&E)

Gnostech performs ST&E and CT&E for diverse Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) and combat systems, including generation of test plans designed to identify vulnerabilities and validate implemented security controls. For any system, we analyze system architectures and software designs, perform connection compliance analyses, integrated product integrity and lifecycle management analyses, and vulnerability assessments.

Cyber Defense

Cybersecurity Operations and Monitoring

When operating and maintaining a network or system, experience is paramount. Gnostech manages the security posture of diverse operational environments and protects against failures, network misconfigurations, and other potential threats. Gnostech also has a vast range of experience in developing, reviewing, and enforcing security policies for agencies and Cybersecurity Operations Centers (CSOCs).

Vulnerability Assessment and Remediation

Gnostech engineers execute vulnerability assessments and scans using to identify and remediate security flaws.  We also gather and evaluate system requirements including cybersecurity controls and mandates such as Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs) and Information Assurance Vulnerability Alerts (IAVAs). By remaining at the forefront of cybersecurity, we ensure our clients’ networks and systems are protected against constantly-evolving threats.

Cyber Response

Cyber Spill and Incident Response

When security incidents strike, Gnostech coordinates event detection and correlation activities for incident management and real-time security assessments. In fact, we stood up a digital evidence laboratory for use by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) and responded to countless cyber incidents and post incident response analysis on behalf of our USN and USCG customers.

Digital Forensics

Gnostech provides law enforcement (LE), intelligence, and operational cyber forensics support to identify spillage and maintain digital evidence.
